Hello Everybody,

My name is Vunal, and I am in 6th grade, 12 years old. This is my first forum post. I followed Mr. Josh Bixler and built his FT scout. I got it to fly about 50 feet before the plane nosedived. I think the plane was pretty nose-heavy, so its remarkable it actuary took off. Any feedback, so I can actually fly my next plane? Building the plane was easy...ish (since I have a quite a bit of experience building things out of cardboard and paper, I've been doing this for about 2 years.) Now I am looking to build another airplane. I feel that I am okay/good at building things, so I am looking at the Master Series Spitfire or Mustang, or Julius Perdana's P-51. I am also looking for a kind of scale looking, Spitfire, P-51 Mustang, TBF Avenger, Hellcat, Bearcat or SBD Dauntless since they are my favorite warbirds. Since you guys know way more than me at this hobby, do you have any suggestions or ideas? I attached a photo of the FT scout I built. Thank you so much in advance!

Well if you couldn't get the scout to fly then anything more advanced is a bad idea. I would recommend actually going down in difficulty to a tiny trainer. You will have a much higher chance of success with that plane and later on you can move to bigger warbirds. The master series planes will take more time to build and they will be much harder to fly than a lot of the other FT planes.
